When a mandatory ABAWD does not follow through with an appointment or component, check to see if he/she is also a mandatory E&T participant.

 

(a) When a mandatory ABAWD is also a mandatory E&T participant:

 

If the person is a mandatory ABAWD and E&T participant, follow the E&T procedures for non-compliance with a work requirement.

        Good cause will be determined.

        If good cause does not exist, the appropriate penalty will be applied.

 

(b) When a mandatory ABAWD is not a mandatory E&T participant:

 

        If the ABAWD misses an appointment with Labor, reschedule with Labor if possible and document the information and outcome.

        If the individual is not cooperating, the month will be considered countable unless otherwise exempt.

        If the individual has no countable months left, he/she is ineligible and must be removed.

        If an individual is ABAWD only, there is no penalty for failing to follow through with an appointment or component.
